AxisBiotix produce food supplements designed to support skin health. Following development of a new product aimed specifically at the treatment of psoriasis, AxisBiotix required a mobile app to gather feedback from participants during a non-clinical trial of the product.

Requirement

STCS were commissioned to develop a cross-platform app for iOS and Android which would allow participants to record their progress during the trial.  The ‘Feedback’ app directed participants to answer questions on their skin health at set times during the trial, while allowing them to record their progress through taking/uploading photos of the affected area’s and rating their skin for different elements such as redness and itchiness. Additional functions included customisable reminders to take the food supplement, a diary, blog with general skin health information and a contact form for participants to ask questions during the trial.

Following a successful trial and the subsequent launch of the AxisBiotix product, STCS were asked to develop the ‘Companion’ app which extended the functionality of the original app considerably, offering users the ability to record their skin condition for different areas of the body individually and view graphs of their progress over time. The Companion app was also developed with multi-language capability to allow AxisBiotix to expand into new countries.

Both apps were developed using the Ionic cross-platform framework to allow deployment of iOS and Android apps from a single code base. Server-side functionality was developed in Node.js with API connection to the apps, allowing content to be dynamically sent to and from the app.

Outcomes

The success of the Feedback app allowed AxisBiotix to confidently take their product to market, while identifying that potential customers required a means to track their progress when taking skin supplements, resulting in the Companion app being made available for all AxisBiotix customers.

AxisBiotix were able to analyse the data collected from both apps to inform and guide further development of the product, in turn providing additional support to end users.

STCS now provide ongoing support and development for both apps, working to an agreed SLA.
